There are certain life events that only happen once every generation or so.
The passing of Halley’s Comet. The blossoming of the Agave americana, aka the century plant. And Georgia winning a national title.
Sorry, Bulldogs fans. Couldn’t resist.
This week’s solar eclipse took center stage, inspiring a celestial creativity from the SEC meme-makers — even if most of them are of the same basic principle.
As the season draws closer, more teams than the usual SEC whipping posts (Alabama, Tennessee and the aforementioned Georgia Bulldogs) received their fair share of abuse, including Auburn, Mississippi State and Texas A&M. We don’t have any Crying Jordans, but see if you can spot former Alabama running back Eddie Lacy. (Hint, it’s hard to miss him).
We look at some of the best memes from around the SEC this week.
Special thanks go out to the members of the Facebook group SEC Throwdown, in particular Jimmy Welch, Jeremy Smith, Patrick Brown, Mike Cameron, Tim Cantrell, Lance Carney, Julie Clarke Jones, Bobby Cleary, Bre Fikes, Chris Grace, Jonathan Ham, Michael Meyer, Toby Pilk, David Schlarp, Vickie Smith and Jeffery Trussell.
